'We are good friends' is equally a promise and a belief of the BEPS community. If anyone were to ask to see 'socialising in progress' at BEPS, I would point towards the playground. On the playground, children get to choose when, with whom, for how long they want to interact.
We have recently introduced a new concept to our Early Years children: "Loose parts play". Our teachers have been encouraging the children to use their imagination, playing with resources including cardboard boxes, wooden planks, branches, tires, pipes, and plastic guttering but also smaller items like buttons, shells, leaves, pebbles, coloured pompoms, and so on.
One of our special BEPS traditions is enjoying Halloween. We love seeing the excitement grow and the children's and their parent's creativity. This year it had to be different, but the tradition was kept alive.
